the candidates that could possibly challenge the democratic majority. host: all right. virginia. joe, you say, no. why? caller: i am not over all happy with what is going on. the reason why i say that is we -- even with the tea party candidates, the only thing we would do is slow down the change. there has not really been any change. understand,don't that i find quite pertinent, with as much discontent as there is from voters -- voting with former democratic candidates as well as republican candidates, while a third party hasn't developed as in with what ross perot? i'm afraid the tea party candidate would do nothing more than to split the votes, we're in a general election the democrats would come back on top. host: on our 20 page -- twitter page -- that comes from helen. san diego. joanne. you say, yes, you are happy with the tea party-backed candidate. caller: i am thrilled. we have a great slate in california with carly fiorina alabama and meg whitman -- host: what she tea party? caller: i have to confess i have not gone out to one of the events, but i am thrilled that people in our country a

a month ago a judge in virginia declined to throw out a lawsuit filed by that state, making similar claims that the obama health care plan requirement is unconstitutional. the judge wasn't clear about which parts. it's more than he wuntd clear. he just declined to say which parts of the case he would throw out. this case in florida makes two claims. the constitutional claim, and then they also say that the state should not have to pay additional medicaid costs. that it's unconstitutional to require them to come up with the money for the program. he didn't say which parts he'll throw out. the fact that he'll let the case continue is another tactical victory for critics of the plan. >> thank you very much, pete williams. again, that ruling from the judge is expected october 14th. thank you, pete. >>> and right now hurricane igor is pushing across the atlantic on a track that could take it directly to bermuda. igor is expected to remain a dangerous category 4 hurricane through thursday before it reaches the bahamas this weekend. then forecasters believe it will downgrade it to a cat 2. julia

and in single single digits in connecticut and west virginia. the republicans are still going to have a very good night on election night, right? >> yeah. the republicans are going to have a good night, but what the tea party has done to the republicans is it's taken competitive races off the field and removed them into a more competitive position for the democrats. i'll give you a couple of examples. in nevada, harry reid was in serious trouble until a tea party candidate was nominated. in kentucky, the republicans shouldn't have to defend kentucky. but because there's a tea party candidate there -- >> a lot of people assumed mike castle was going to win last night. >> a lot of people said mike castle was going to win, but now the democrats are probably going to win that general. and if lisa markowski runs as an independent, the republicans will probably win there. but what they need to do is take a look at the seats that are now back in play or where democrats have an advantage because of the tea party movement, disrupting their primaries and frankly disrupting america. >> all right. we're

is there, outside of d.c., sterling, virginia, this morning. a lot of what's in the pledge seems to be classic republican ideas that we've heard for some time now, years, as a meat of fact, anything new in here? >> reporter: well, i think what's new and what's most interesting is the way that house republicans are trying to make the tea parties voters, especially understand that they are trying to listen to them. i think we have some examples of points that i saw were clear indications that they were trying to reach out. little things. for example, weekly votes on spending cuts. a pledge to cut congress's budget. a net hiring freeze of nonsecurity federal employees. and a vote on every regulation costing more than $100 million. those, each of those, is a nod to the idea that many in the base, you know, you hear republicans talking about this rebellion. rebellion is in large part about spending. so these are little things that the house republicans say they will try to do to address that. in addition to that there are some items in here that address the whole idea at that governme
